Far Out vs. Hot Dang, Vol. 36

The 36th chamber is hardly a place of contemplation, but we'll definitely kick a statistic at you: The Twitter List will hit 90 this week.

Photos: Maryland Deathfest VIII

Last weekend, literally thousands of metalheads from around the world descended on Baltimore for the annual Maryland Deathfest, which just seems to keep getting bigger each year.

Between photography and sheer metal overload, I saw a number of bands about which I couldn't [...]

I missed the first day, but will post more about Saturday and Sunday of MDF VII later. For now, here are a few photos and my thoughts in superlative form, after the jump.

What to See at Maryland Deathfest

Maryland Deathfest is about to kick off its first day in a couple hours, but better late than never, right? I'll be covering Saturday and Sunday, but for anyone still thinking about heading up to Baltimore (tickets are still available, but not many of them!), here is my absolutely non-comprehensive and subjective preview of [...]
